Scholes believes the "quality signings" made by Mourinho is already starting to pay dividends
Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Scholes said: "The quality of the players he (Mourinho) has brought in, that's the biggest difference.
"The previous managers (David Moyes and Louis van Gaal) took a risk by playing some players that could have worked but probably didn't work as well as they should have done.
"But he [Mourinho] brought in ready made players. That was what was needed, ready made players for the Premier League."
